    How to require a row in the table field?

    Asked by CASNR on November 21, 2016 at 01:32 PM

    I have a form with a table. I need to require that at least one row (not just one cell) is filled out before they can submit. I do not want to require the entire table or every cell is filled out in the entire table, but just the first row.

    Right now they can fill out one cell and submit.

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to just require one row. The only options available are "No, Require an answer on every row, Require at least one answer and Require an answer in every cell".

    If you want you can use the Configurable List widget. The widget allows you to define the various field types per column on the list in a matrix-type of layout. Here's a helpful guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/282-How-to-Set-Up-the-Configurable-List-Widget.
